LA City Council to Consider Actions for Concerns with Driver-less Vehicles – MyNewsLA.com


As concerns remain about the operation of driver-less vehicles in Los Angeles, the City Council Tuesday will consider taking steps intended to bolster their ability to regulate them.

Council members are expected Tuesday to consider recommendations to monitor and address issues with what are also known as autonomous vehicles in the city. Additionally, as part of the item, council will consider backing three state bills aimed at providing municipalities more power to regulate AVs, and gain access to testing data.

The city’s Chief Legislative Analyst brought forward these recommendations after the City Council adopted a motion introduced by council members Traci Park and Bob Blumenfield in November 2023. The motion called for details around local, state and federal laws that govern the use of AVs, options for the city to gain access to testing data, and opportunities to support legislation that would empower Los Angeles elected officials in regulating AVs within city limits.
